Cheap Shots

This is absolutely, without question, the second-cheapest-shot ever administered by a Packer on a Bear in my lifetime. And I can't stop laughing.

The cheapest shot?

That's easy. Charles Martin on Jim McMahon. This one, not even remotely funny. I remember sitting on our living room floor in disbelief as they showed the replay. This was, for me, the low point of being a Packer fan.

The Charles Martin play definitely was a low point. The Packers were living by the "If you can't beat 'em, hurt 'em" mantra.
My how things have changed.

Unbelievable. That was hilarious. And disturbing.

The first one is funny as hell. Martin's? It's low. And dumb.

The Suhey hit was great. I loved it when I was a kid, and I tivo'd and watched it about 20 times last year when NFLN reaired that game.

I refuse to think of Charles Martin's hit as the low point of my Packer fan life. I'm comfortable knowing that I'm just not that good of a person. Screw the Bears and screw their legions of a-hole tourist fans telling all of Wisconsin how we wouldn't exist without their money.

And anyway, I felt worse when Mossy Cade got busted for...well, for what he got busted for.

The 1985 game against the Bears is one of my favorite Packer games. Its great that the NFL Network deems it as a NFL Classic and replays it from time to time.
Those two cheap shots are definitely WTF moments in Packer history.
Who can forget Charles Martin`s "Hit List Towel"?

I always thought Payton had Lee by the facemask on that play where Lee was ejected.

i have no memory of either of these hits (i was 3 in 1985), and don't have much understanding of the context - but while they're both cheap as hell - the first looks more dangerous, and i would say, thus cheaper. dude is essentially running full speed into other dude whose body is totally unprepared for such a hit.

don't get me wrong, if jolly or someone nowadays did that (2nd one) to a qb, i would be ashamed if the packers didn't flat release the guy before the game was even over. just grab a sideline reporter and tell them "fyi, he's not a packer anymore, you should report that at the half"
